    New Member Introductions
    I haven't been on here in 9 years! Probably haven't fished even longer than that. I live in Paige, close to Bastrop and so am thinking of trying my luck there. Is there a forum for Lake Bastrop or surrounding areas around Austin? I've been gone from fishing a pretty long time. I need to...

    Hello, New to the forum. I've been fishing for a long time, but have just taken it up again. I don't have much experience fishing in TX, as I have previously lived in PA and Bolivia, South America. I am a student at UT so I don't want to have to drive to far.

    It is a little late, so I might not get replies, but I was wondering about where to fish at Red Bud. Heading out there tomorrow morning to try my luck in the waters. I'll be out there from around 6:30-9:00am or so. In my last topic someone had posted a kayaking site (which was helpful), but...
  9. Need a little help please!

    Bank Fishing Reports
    So I'm newly into fishing, although I've tried it intermittently as a child, I'm definitely still learning what/where/how in fishing. Anyhow, the first place I fished recently (months ago) was at twin lakes in Cedar Park by the YMCA. Had lots of luck there as far as sunfish and one good catfish...
